Welcome to Good Burger
19 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Keenan and Kel were a big part of many peoples childhoods with their TV show and this great film that will long live in the memory of anyone who sees it. Sure it's not Oscar winning stuff but it is pure entertainment.

The two are talented in their own right but act as a perfect almost Laurel and Hardy double act as they find themselves having to defend their small burger bar against a big chain corporation. While the plot is predictable the performances aren't and there are some truly laugh out loud moments.

Although Keenan and Kel hold the movie together there are some nice guest appearances with Linda Cardellini being the stand out.

Overall a really good family movie that leaves us only wanting to see more the dynamic duo.
